Hi. Firstly, please watch Marly and Me and thank your lucky stars your pooch is so good! Secondly NEVER smack her for doing any of the above as this will just make the problem worse. Any attention for a pooch, be it negative or positive, is what they are after. Also if you smack her she could be stressed and the pulling of the washing could be her destressing mechanism. NEVER leave her with a muzzle on as that is cruel. Make sure she gets excercised, although not too strenuously. Maybe take her to puppy daycare about 3 times a week to get rid of some of her energy and go socialise her. Have you considered putting the washing line somewhere else?Please let me know where you live so that I can suggest a daycare in your area. My no is 0798837566.
